At Orchard Preschool we use tapestry online learning journals. These journals can include observations, photographs, EYFS assessments, characteristics of learning and videos. They can be enhanced by comments from other staff and parents giving us a clearer and whole picture of your child. Tapestry allows you to add observations and photographs of your own as well as share your comments. We love to hear about learning and WOW moments from home and share these with your child in preschool.

This system is hosted in the UK on secure servers. These servers conform to very high environmental standards and are pro-actively managed 24 hours a day. As parents you are only able to view your own child’s journal and can choose to receive an email telling you when a new observation or piece of work has been uploaded. This will enable you to follow your child’s progress closely and you can reflect upon achievements with your child. Staff will reference your child’s learning to the EYFS profile so you will know which area of learning your child is achieving in and the age-band they were working in for that activity. All of this information is stored on a highly secure server which is monitored closely.


Orchard Preschool offers nature based early years care and education for children aged one until they are ready to go to school.
